Seen Studios is a creative retail design and production agency of 26 members, our award-winning design and production team is built of industry experts from different creative paths. The team thrive off the ever-evolving landscape of retail, design, and creativity, supporting our mission to become an extension and strategic partner for our global clients and not just a service provider. We offer everything from strategy and conception, full 3D retail and spatial design, through to production and installation.
The pandemic, like most, hit our industry hard and disrupted the core of what we all love doing as a team, but our ethic and commitment saw us primarily push our virtual capabilities, learning a new way of providing creative commercial value for brands. This time saw us launch virtual press events and showrooms, such as our very own metaverse space, Seen Beyond and accelerated our portfolio of online retail amplification when creating assets that would work physically and digitally. All of this was executed whilst ensuring we were always giving back and educating those that interact with the SEEN brand.
We also continued to build on our appetite for collaboration. Knowing that all creative industries had been hit hard, we aimed to shine a light on up-and-coming designers and creatives by inviting them to collaborate on internal and external projects. The results saw some of our best insightful and creative spaces that have been recognised globally, such as our collaboration between Nike and Alicia Robinson of London-based knitwear brand AGR.
We are proud to have survived a turbulent 18 months, with our staff’s happiness and motivation at the heart of all our decisions. A name change, and new office-space to call home, has seen the start of 2022 as a year of growth, adaptation, and determination.
Being shortlisted for the Best Creative/Design agency of the year is the recognition that our team of resilient and adaptive creatives deserve. This is credit to not only our epic design team but our flawless project management team who continue to turn our designs into reality, whether through physical or digital execution.
We have fortunately tracked into 2022 with growing accounts and business, but to go ahead and win this would give us the pause in works to look back and really celebrate the time that was, and a time that helped shaped who we are today.
That said, after just shy of 10 years, Seen Displays has grown into a full rounded, strategic creative and production agency for global retail brands, so much more than what can be summarised as ‘Displays’, and with this in mind we’re incredibly proud to introduce to you our new name; Seen Studios.
Seen ‘Studios’ represents not only what we have become but what our ambitions are for the future of the agency and winning this award would measure against the ever-inspiring team that Seen Studios continues to grow. It celebrates the dedication and creativity that the agency demonstrates year on year, bringing insightful and human-centric creativity to an industry that is fruitful, invincible, and full of surprises.
